Many people don’t know we celebrate Independence Day. It’s a non-work day, so that’s good enough for them. Political independence from a controlling government over local politics was the goal. The following is from Breitbart:
“A new poll just out from Rasmussen shows the credibility of the Supreme Court has been severely frayed among likely voters. A telephone poll conducted after the Obamacare and gay marriage decisions shows fully 33% of likely voters believe their states should ignore decisions of the Courts. This is a 37% increase from only four months ago, when Rasmussen asked the question for the first time. Only 52% of likely voters disagreed with the proposition.”
This is good news. Given today’s political climate, I’m willing to wager that the courts and Congress would consider the Declaration of Independence seditious and treasonous. People would go to jail advocating the principles outlined in the Declaration.
How do I know?
